A concept the airport is currently pursuing is a full-service spa. The airport does offer massage and nail services, but Autar expects a spa facility will be a popular addition to Schiphol's existing services.
Autar foresees in the coming years that the exposure of brands will have more impact than they have had in the past. He adds that "the retail concept has to be more flexible because the consumer is changing. The consumer has more choices today. Because of globalization the consumer is more willing to buy [duty-free] things such as liquor and tobacco at other airports. So you have to attract them to make their purchases at your airport with more than just tax free and duty free."
The implementation of the mechanical unloading mechanism has brought Schiphol another step closer to completing its 70-million bag program.
